    We had a terrific birthday dinner for my husband at Nick and Sams. It was a weeknight and the place was hopping! I had wriitten in my open table reservation comments that it was my hubbies birthday and it seemed everyone on staff wished him a happy birthday that night. Our food was delightful and we always order a larger meat portion so we can take home some leftovers! We love Nick and Sams!

    Very good, had the chateaubriand. The house was very accommodating to our tastes and requests. We had a lobster beignet special that was good, even to my wife who's a New Brunswick girl (hard to please as far as lobster goes). I personally haven't had a steak like that in a long time. They have very good beef there. The char is excellent and the taste is rich and tender - exactly what its supposed to be. So, thank you, we went there for a real restaurant experience and you delivered.

    This was our first visit, and the experience exceeded even Three Forks and The Mansion. Amazing, perfectly timed service. Best steak I've ever had. Bottle of decent wine, sushi starter, chopped salad, comped caviar taster, rib eyes, grilled asparagus, chocolate souffle and coffee service $200. I gotta say a value for the experience. And a grand piano playing in the open restaurant / service pit!

    One of my favorite spots anywhere. A great mix of food, service and atmosphere - Nick and Sam's never disappoints. They have some of the best beef in town, regularly supplemented by specials. I sometimes like to start my meal with dessert. The only challenge is to decide whether something sweet or the complimentary caviar is a better first step to what is usually a culinary treat. The service is both attentive and unobtrusive. The staff know their stuff and are able to make some recommendations for different palates. If you feel like listening to your favorite hip hop while you dine, the bar scene offers a quintessential Dallas experience. The staff will make you feel like an old friend when you show up.

    Reservations
    Dined on 10/11/2014
    Let me start by saying I still consider Nick and Sam's to be the best dining experience in Dallas. The waiters are attentive, you won't find better beef anywhere else in the world (maybe Japan, but then again, this place carries Omi beef, so you might want to save the trip). However, they need to understand what a reservation is. If I make a reservation for 8:30, it's because I expect to be seated at that time, or at least rather close to it. That's what a reservation is: the prior confirmation of your commitment to the establishment as your option for dining that evening. The fact that we were seated 30 minutes after the reservation time (and we arrived 2 minutes prior) is unacceptable for a restaurant like this.

    We go here every year when in town to celebrate birthdays. It is always excellent. The food is superb and the service is extraordinary. It is an expensive restaurant, but worth every penny. I am already looking forward to next year.

    For how expensive it is the ambiance, service and food does meet expectations of other comparable fine dining experiences I have had. It is so dark in the restaurant that everyone was having to use their flashlight app to see the menu, food etc. I think the owners need to get involved again.

    One of the best high-end restaurants in Dallas. I would highly recommend going if you crave beef or seafood and don't mind spending more for quality. We went for my wife's birthday, so when the waiter found out about this, he came back with a hand written card signed by the staff. A very classy touch. The only knock I can give is our server forgot to bring our leftovers after we paid our tab an were ready to leave. We actually had to wait for the manager to find our leftovers and bring them to us because the waiter did not return after we paid. Other than that, an excellent experience.

    While we had great service, the kitchen just could not get our steaks right. The manager ended up picking up the tab for our table of 5 and bringing over extra food but we never got a good, cooked-to-order steak. Also, even though I made a reservation 2 weeks in advance we were stuck in a corner of a small room. The bar area is kinda cool. Wouldn't go back.

    Have you ever had a steak cooked with a crust? One that melts in your mouth, but has that wicked crust on it from a great sear? No? Head to Nick and Sam's Steakhouse and you'll get to experience what I'm talking about. One of a small few restaurants where I've experienced such greatness in my lifetime. Don't forget to get your steak Oscar style! Loaded with a generous mound of delectable crab chunks and smothered in a smooth, creamy Bearnaise sauce. The sides were equally tasty. The service was second to none. The ambiance was as good as one could hope for. Want to take your loved one to dinner for a night to remember, guaranteed to not disappoint? Head to Nick and Sam's.

    We loved the service, the food was incredible. We thought it was an amazing experience. If we had one problem, I would say the portions on the sides are way too small. The steaks were not very large either. The taste was by far the best we have ever had, so that is all I can say.

    We got the filet Mignon and it was just OK. Nothing to rave about. It wasn't very flavorful. The brussel sprouts were actually really good. Although the service and good was OK, we wouldn't go back. Not to mention the place is VERY loud. We went on a Saturday night. I wouldn't recommend this as a romantic place.

    I've been to every major steakhouse in Dallas more than once and nothing tops Nick & Sams! The atmosphere, food and service are second to none. In my opinion, you are wasting your time and money going anywhere else. You can spend a little or a lot depending upon how you order. I've been to top steakhouses throughout the country and this is still my favorite. Don't believe the airplane magazines, the restaurants on those lists pay to be on there.

The restaurant was a bit too noisy we couldnt enjoy the piano much. I wish it would of been a bit quiet. Thank you for reading and following the special instructions noted on my opentable reservation request. The rose petals and the card gives it an excellent touch!! That is A+ idea!!!

    Pretentious wanna-bes who love to hear themselves talk, loudly, will love this place. It has the most extreme irritating practice of "upselling" I've encountered in years. No mater what one orders, the waiter (if he shows up) will have a suggestion about a similar but better item priced about 50% more. Really so shameless it's almost laughable.

    Restaurant never fails to impress; the food is wonderful, service outstanding and presentation & surroundings are great. I have traveled the US extensively and ate in many top rated restaurants, Nick & Sam's takes a back seat to none of them. Remember; you get what you pay for, this is not the Outback, what you get may be the best experience you ever had. Be sure to let them know if you are celebrating a special occasion and they will make it worth it. We go to Nick's as often as possible and find it is hard to visit any of the many other fine Dallas area restaurants.

    This place is great! From the food to the service everything was impeccable! ! It was our first visit to Nick and Sam's we were celebrating my boyfriends birthday and we're given complimentary caviar and champagne! Now I'm not a caviar person but I had to try it. The waitress was great at explaining all the different cuts of meat that all sounded delicious but also expensive I had the filet mignon and my boyfriend had the cowboy something it was great. The icing on the cake had to be when Tony Romo walked in the room with six other cowboys and ate at the table next to us. My boyfriend and I are huge Cowboy fans so just the fact that they were in arms reach was amazing and made his birthday the best one yet. We will definitely be back!

    Came on a Wednesday night for our anniversary and received exceptional service the entire time. We had rose petals on the table with a card from the restaurant saying happy anniversary, as well as every staff member saying it to us, including one of the managers. We sat in a cozy booth next to the piano and were greeted by our server immediately. He was already well aware of our food allergies and was prepared to make accommodations for any dish we order. He was very friendly and professional and recommended a great wine for our meal. I ordered fish, but my husband got the ribeye and this was one of the best steaks he's ever had. Food was amazing, service was impeccable, place was great overall. The only complaint was the noise level.

    Food and service stellar- it's Dallas' best steakhouse. But it was too cold at our table (and from what i can see there were vents over every table). It's summer so I was sleeveless, and was not the only thing freezing- my food was cold within a minute of being set in front of me. This was fine for the tartar but didn't work as well on the mushrooms or the Dover sole...(both were delicious but didn't warm me up like a hot meal should). Excellent wine, amazing quality all around. Well worth it. Bring a jacket!
